NVIDIA 169.04 Beta Linux Driver
Phoronix: NVIDIA 169.04 Beta Linux Driver
Late last month NVIDIA released the GeForce 8800GT graphics card, however, today NVIDIA has finally delivered an updated Linux display driver to add this new product support as well as correct other outstanding issues. This new Linux display driver is version 169.04 Beta, which is a large version bump from the previous 100.14 series.

I am considering buying the Nvidia 8800GT OC 512mb pci-e
graphics card and am wondering if there are issues with it running Linux.

I tried the 100.19 driver and the new beta and they seemed to have fixed the 2D slow redraw issue, I still see some flicker on HD video playback though. Seems to use more resources and playback is jumpier than my older ge6600.
